only thing id change is instead of the three square buttons directly behind the throttle id have switches similar to the X-55 and warthog. this coming from a VR user buttons are alot harder to separate from each other than switches by feel and not having to look through the "gap" in the headset. the rest looks amazing and with those little changes I would buy.

So...any updates on what each control surface is on the TECS, and when they'll go into production? Really looking forward to having an alternative to the CH Products throttle for space sims :)

Any updates on the progress of the throttle?

Ive been using the tiny MS FFB2 paddle throttle in my left hand since I picked up the Gunfighter Pro with MCG Pro, holding out for the VKB throttle to replace it.

:arrow: This is a technical update, which means it cannot be taken as any reference to any certain date when the product can become available, but the design is practically completed and we're moving onto making pre-serial samples.
Sure, it is a big step, and it means a lot. But please don't take it as the new throttle is just around the corner.
It is coming, and we're working on it every day.
Stay tuned for news :)
Best Regards,
AeroGator

That is nice to hear.

Would you be able to at least let us know if there have been any significant changes to the design from the reference photos posted above in the 1st post? In particular, if there are any additions/changes in the number of hats/btns/etc.

I understand that delivery is still quite a ways off but, as consumers, we still need to decide as to whether it's worth the wait or not. At present, while the VKB design looks very nice I'm concerned at the lack of hats and not a big fan of ministicks doubling as hats (they don't have tactile feedback). If there has been any change in this regard, it would be good to know. If not, fair enough, but it just may not be the throttle for me.

Thanks, and best of luck with the development.

OMG TEC is coming !!!!

Can't wait !

well, guess i will have to, thats the curse with anything VKB wise... EXTREMELY long waits, akin to waiting for starcitizen to finish - like.

So how about dem twist adapters and left handed grips, aye >?
